Happy Boo-day!

Yay!!!  I'm finally back at it!!! I made this card for the Fantabulous Cricut's Challenge Me Monday #83.  This challenge was to create a project with a ghost on it, and I thought a nice Halloween card would really hit the spot!!
ALL cardstock is from The Paper Company's value packs.
I started with a 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" piece of orange cardstock and folded it in half for the base of my card.  Then, for my first layer, I cut a piece of black cardstock at 5 1/4"x 4".  I layered a piece of gray cardstock that was cut at 5 1/4"x 1 1/2" on the bottom half of the black cardstock using my ATG gun.  I covered up the "seem" of where the papers meet with a piece of orange polka dotted grosgrain ribbon and secured it on the back using regular Scotch tape.  I attached the whole thing to the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I used the "Mini Monsters" cartridge with my Cricut Expression to cut the Ghost.  I cut the ghost at 3 1/2" and added a shadow to the ghost to add a little more to it and to make it stand out more.  I secured the ghost to my card using 3D-Dots to make it pop off of the page, making it the main focal point.
Then to finish off my card I used a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "Spooky Puns" set with a Stampin' Up! Classic, Basic Black, ink pad for my sentiment. 

I wanted to stick to the traditional Halloween colors for this project to make it fit with the holiday and I really like the way it turned out.  I love the Halloween colors!!!  I hope you all enjoyed this card!!!  It's great to be back!!!!

Happy Crafting!!!!
